This category includes a wide variety of collectables from cameras to vintage posters, toys, memorabilia etc. Often the stories accompanying the objects can add significantly to their value. A photographic autograph postcard after an original taken by JW Barker from RMS Carpathia, with survivors was consigned for sale, our research uncovered that the photographer, J.W. Barker was a passenger on board Carpathia, and gave the photograph to John McQuair, a waiter on board the Carpathia, who subsequently mailed it home to his family in the form of a postcard. This type of research uncovering connections authenticates such items and provides excellent provenance for collectors. It achieved a healthy £820.
